Welcome to The Laurel Board of Trade
Bringing Laurel Businesses Together
The Laurel Board of Trade, Inc. is a local non-profit membership organization that has been bringing together Laurel merchants since the early 1960s.
The Laurel Board of Trade today includes over 100 small business members including retail merchants, restaurant owners and professional and B2B service providers. We work in direct partnership with the City of Laurel, Prince George’s County and the State of Maryland to help our local merchants work towards the common goal of keeping Laurel a hub of commerce.
Over the years, our basic mission has not changed; to help members be their best through connections to knowledge, ideas, relationships with other small businesses in the area and educating the community on the importance of buying local and supporting your local small businesses.
The Laurel Historical Society opened the Laurel Museum as a small community museum and archives on Main Street in Laurel, Maryland, in 1996. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization located in Prince George’s County. Our mission is to promote and preserve the history and cultural heritage of Laurel, and we also serve as a cultural organization open to the public to access our exhibits, gallery space, and research library.
